Accessing XML Using Java Technologies
The most important benefit of XML is its simplicity. Though it is simple it is powerful enough to express complex data structures. Java is one of most important programming languages that is used for creating your web pages.
It is an object oriented language whose main purpose was to be used with embedded systems such as cell phones. But later it gained more importance to be used with Web pages that were dynamic in nature. Java Applet and servelets are the important mechanisms for implementing this.
Another advantage of using Java is the concept of JavaBeans, which is a software component model for Java that allows the rapid development of an application by using a visual buider.DOM is one of the methods for accessing the structure of an XML document.
An alternative is to use an event driven API.SAX is a simple API designed for XML.DocumentHandler is very important since it is called every time an element is found. A DocumentHandler is used as follows:
Step 1: Importing the parser interface
Step 2: Create an instance of SAX driver.
Step 3: Using this driver, create a parser object
Step 4: Register an instance of class MyHandler as a DocumentHandler.
JOX is a set of Java libraries that allows you to transfer data between XML documents and JavaBeans. JOX matches XML document to the fields of a bean and it will use a DTD when writing an XML document when one is available.JOX, unlike the other libraries, allows you to use any form of an XML document and any JavaBean without creating a separate schema to describe the mapping between Java and XML.
XP is an XML parser written in Java. The following are the advantages of XP:
* XP is designed to be 100% conformant and correct
* XP aims at High performance
* Apart from the high level parser API, it also provides a low level API that supports the construction of different kinds of parser.
Breeze XML Binder is the most complete Java/XML data binding solution available. Breeze creates JavaBeans directly created from the XML structures.

What Is The Orange "XML" or "RSS" Icon I See More and More On Web Sites?
This question does not have a one sentence answer! If I just said that one uses this icon to get a site's RSS feed, you still won't understand. So let's try and answer you in such a way that it all makes sense to you and, more importantly, that you learn how to benefit from it.
Let's say that you like my web site very much and you would like to read new content as I add it. At this stage there is no way of informing you when I've added a new page except for notifying you by email. This assumes that you've provided me with your e-mail address - which most people are hesitant to do any way. The other way is for you to bookmark my site - but how many times do people really go back to a site?
What if I told you that you could have a little "window" (called a reader or an aggregator) on your monitor and that, each time I updated my site, you are automatically informed about it. How, you may ask? A headline (called a news feed) and a short summary to inform/tease you is squirted to your reader. If the teaser interests you, all you need to do is follow the hyperlink that will take you to that page on my web site where you can read it all. If you're not interested, you simply delete the headline. The process is repeated each time I add new content.
You can of course subscribe to as many feeds as you want to - from current affairs to people's personal blogs (a weblog is short for web log which is a diary or a journal on the internet).
So, what must you do to set it up and how much is it going to cost?
Let's answer the second question first: Setting it up is FREE - it will cost you nothing.
This is how to setup a reader or an aggregator on a Windows system:
Download Microsoft's .NET framework here:
Install this on you system.
Download RSSReader from here:
Install this on you system.
You are now ready to add your first feed.
As an example I'll walk you through the process of adding my site http://www.perfect-party-ideas.com 's XML feed. Navigate to the site. On the home page you will see the orange XML icon. Right-click the XML icon and then click the "Copy Shortcut" option.
Open the RSSReader and click on the green "+ Add" icon in the top left hand corner. A form opens up that prompts you to enter the URL of the feed. Just paste the URL here (ctrl-v). Well done - you've just added your very first RSS feed.
Let's test if it is working. Click the "Get" icon which is to the left of the "+Add" icon. You should see a number of feeds arriving in your reader. Simply double-click the ones you are interested in to read the summary. Click the "Read more" or "Open in a Browser" links if you want to read the whole article.
Was it that difficult? No, I agree, it's fairly straight forward.
Now you are ready to sign up for more feeds. Why not sign up for my weblog 's feed as well? I use my weblog to document the process of setting up my web site. There I share my ideas, failures, frustrations, doubts, successes, and articles that have I found useful. And, B.t.w. I also tell you how to make money from your web site.
If you're interested in following the exciting journey, just copy and paste this URL exactly as you did with the previous one.
Congratulations - you have entered the exciting world of RSS!
